  • Opie Misbehaves!

    This is an O.K. episode where we see Opie struggle with some basic value issues. His friend Arnold is a spoiled rich kid who tries to convince Opie that parents are supposed to give you an allowance--you don't have to work for it. He also shows Opie how to throw fits, cry and stomp his feet if he doesn't get his way . The trouble is that we know Opie far too well by this point and that it is completely out of character for him. The writing is a little poor in this episode, and the plot lines just don't add that typical Andy Griffith punch. Still watchable--but a little forgettable.
